Description

The book features works from the Golda and Meyer Marks Cobra Collection, the largest Cobra art collection in America. The NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale collection of Cobra art includes more than 1,600 works and is the largest museum collection in the United States, thanks in large part to Golda and Meyer Marks donating their collection from 1978 until their deaths in 1998 and 1991, respectively. Cobra art was born as an art collective in 1948 in reaction to the devastation of World War II and named for its artists' home cities (Copenhagen, Brussels, Amsterdam). Cobra art is raw, vital, spontaneous, and filled with dynamic abstract and semi-abstract forms. Its artists worked together and often collaboratively before going their separate ways in 1951, to achieve a new means of expression that challenged traditions and the constraints on artistic expression they had experienced during World War II.
